And now a leaf-cutter bees incubation question
Our mason bees are out, and hard at work(if you remember my previous post, we were a bit worried when the first males came out while not much flowers were bloomed yet, but it seemed they more than managed ) and now we have just received our leafcutter bees. My question is, I read they require an incubation period in the 30Celsius range, but how do you do the incubation at home? Do you simply take them out of the fridge and leave them in the shed(in a mesh bag with daily checkup) starting in june and when the temperature is high enough the process will start by itself? This is our first year trying to help the bees population and pollination and there sure is alot to learn.
